British tabloid newspaper Express claimed without citing a source on Monday that Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza was influenced by Koei Tecmo's Dynasty Warriors video game franchise. The Express describes Dynasty Warriors as "shockingly violent fantasy war game."
Dynasty Warriors is a series of tactical action games based on the Chinese era described in Romance of the Three Kingdoms historical novel.
According to witnesses, Adam Lanza opened fire in the Connecticut elementary school on Friday, killing 20 children, six adults, and himself.
